Zauschneria arizonica/Hardy Hummingbird Trumpet -- puts on an extravagant display of red-orange flowers. It thrives planted in front of hot south and west facing walls and walks, in areas that might fry less heat loving plants. Plant in well-drained soil, not too much clay. Hummingbird Trumpet appreciates regular watering the first year or two, particularly during dry winters, to help get it well established.


Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Gracilis’ -- An elegant and beautiful large columnar shrub to small evergreen tree, the slender Hinoki cypress is a great choice for small gardens. It will become a narrow pillar with lovely layered fan-like branches densely radiating from the main trunk. It is slower and more compact than typical Hinoki cypress and matures more gracefully.
